TIMBER FRAME WALL (INTERNAL)

How To Install

Internal Timber Frame Wall Installation

SuperFOIL can be applied directly to the studs either horizontally or vertically.

When applying horizontally, start at the bottom of the wall working upwards with each layer ensuring to leave a 50mm overlap. For vertical installations, start at the top of the wall and roll the insulation downwards. 

When fitting the insulation, ensure to keep the product taut whilst stapling into place. Staples should be placed at regular intervals of 50mm-100mm. Then simply cut the SuperFOIL to the required length and repeat the process with the next layer, ensuring a minimum of a 50mm overlap between layers.

At the floor & ceiling trim SuperFOIL allowing for a small overlap, seal the joins using SuperFOIL superior foil tape and then fix with the correct size batten.

Ensure all joints, tears or cuts are sealed fully using SuperFOIL 100m foil tape to achieve an airtight finish. 

To finish the installation, install the correct size counter battens on top of the SuperFOIL to create an air gap. The internal finish is then fixed onto the battens in line with manufacturer’s recommendations.
